I like this TN because it's not your average, plain everyday TN. The soft gathering of fabric on the sleeves, the shirttail hem and rich space dyed color make this TN stand out from all the rest. The first thing I noticed was how incredibly thin the fabric was. I wasn't expecting this from a garment advertised as a "TN-Sweater". Holding the fabric up to light I could see through it - even with the fabric doubled up. I was expecting a more substantial TN I could wear as a warm base during the PNW winter or stand alone "sweater" for Fall. However, after trying it on I gravitated towards "LIKE. The color- a gorgeous deep purple, the cut and the drape of the fabric all positives. I LOVED the feel of the silk-like material next to my skin. This TN feels weightless on. It can easily be dressed up and almost looked too dressy with my faded jeans and Patagonia down vest.
I'm often between sizes so I took a chance and ordered size S in order to get the color Grapevine (a rich shade of purple) which was not available in XS. I like more fitted clothing but not skin tight. Size S turned out to be too large for my taste and the sleeves way too long. For reference, I have a petite frame: 5'2" 115-120, 32-33C/D. Usually I wear a XS or 0/25 in Prana jeans. Sadly, I had to return this top, but would have exchanged it in a heartbeat had it available in XS and still on sale. I cannot attest to how the fabric would stand up to time or if it shrinks with washing and drying. The product label states cold H2O wash and cool dry.
In summary, this is a very cute top with lots of fashion positives. I would NOT consider it a "Sweater" as advertised but rather a very thin, TN with personality. For me, the positives outweigh the negatives and I'd buy again but only if on sale. Would be great for travel as the fabric does not appear to wrinkle. I'd be concerned the fabric might snag.....worth the risk if on sale IMHO.
